Pelosi blamed the health care reform law’s poor public support on opponents who have misrepresented the legislation.

“I’m very proud of the Affordable Care Act. I think the understanding of it has been jeopardized by misrepresentations that have been out there relentlessly,” she told reporters when asked about Thursday’s CBS/New York Times poll…

Whitehouse, Women and the Affordable Care Act



What Do 20.4 Million Women Have in Common?

President Obama’s health care law requires that new health insurance plans cover preventive services with no co-pay or deductible. In the last 18 months, a new provision of the Affordable Care Act has done just that for approximately 20.4 million women with private health insurance.
